it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and very often when it comes we tray to look the other way. i believe that we have been reasonably responsive in immediate response, immediate response by doctrine and policy are military dod authorities moving out their gates into their neighborhoods when a disaster hits right next door. i mean, that seems to make sense. we have good relationships at our bases and stations and the ability to roll out and assist is something you would expect to work out pretty well. some of that has matured, in fact. in the state of california we have established a number of agreements, most particularly the wildfires where both third fleet and the expeditionary force assign helicopters in the need we are requested, it's pre-planned, o

days after the hurricane hit. ap says power restorations took longer after hurricanes katrina, wilma and ike, which does sound surprising. >> not really. you have to understand, it's more built up. you're putting telephone poles in by hand basically. gloria went through long island in '85. it took three weeks to get power back there. >>> we are having a nice weekend. i added a couple of high clouds on sunday. other than that, that's it. this is a beautiful shot from our weather cam. you can see the washington monument, clear skies. sun is going down. going to get chilly now. 49 at national, but everybody else in the low to mid 40's already. pressure is steady. and really looking at a crisp night. breezes will pick up a little bit later on tonight. so if you're headed out, it is friday after all. if you're going to be out late, make sure you remember the coat. we'll take you out west for just a minute, because it's just raining from l.a., almost san diego to seattle and i point this out because that's where it's going to be stormy all weekend, which is one reason we're going to enjoy
plummeted. it washurricane katrina times, up $15, and now it's down torina about $2. it's so cheap and plentiful, but people don't want to sort of embrace the idea this is good for the environment because it is, after all, a fossil fuel.ue. >> it is.t 's not the end of the solution to climate change, but, listen, we have triedor 20 years witho kiota and the e.u. wanted to dod goo.d. we -- i'm from -- we paid $20 billion or $30 billion to cut emissions, and you've done it for free, actually, made moneyyu doing it because you got cheaper energy. that's theth way forward. also, for china and india and everyone else. melissa: proponents of solar and wind don't want to hear is while fracking has been profitable, it's helped the environment, but at the same time, you look at things, like, a big story from w wyoming, why theyh drill, anddrl there's a well that is contaminated one way or the other, and seems like in the repos dealing with this and the neighbors in the neighborhood are saying, and s this is pavilion, wyoming, it's, a result of theracking nearby, and that's a case they point
, president bush was criticized by both parties when he flew over katrina and didn't stop. so, i think today's show, melissa, would have been if president obama didn't offer to come here, we would be talking about why the president dissed new york, why he didn't offer to go there while he has the state wrapped up politically and doing this for political reasons. he offered to go. the mayor said, hey, we have a lot going on and we're busy and declined that. i think the mayor made a mistake. anytime a president offers to come visit on the ground i think you should take that. that is mayor bloomberg's choice. we disagree on what he did but i understand why he did it. melissa: thank goodness said the little part at the end because all of sudden you weren't on to disagree but i won you over before we start the argument, i don't put beyond the realm of possibility. you would have accepted it if you were in new york city? do you have a monitor near you? do you happen to see, can you put up the traffic again? did you happen to see what is going on? there it is. oh. >> this is not the worst catastrop
the deaths after katrina were from carbon monoxide poisoning. if you have trouble breathing, should have detector. if you're having trouble breathing or something doesn't seem right, you should get checked out. we're seeing a lot of carbon monoxide poisoning from people who don't sense it. jamie: i thought that the points that you raised were all very important. and we'll put up a full screen folks can have them in the back of their mind if they're feeling symptoms. mold fits in there certainly too with the breathing. hypothermia is something a lot of people are experiencing because of no heat. but contaminated drinking water, i saw portable water fountains breezy point in long island. what is safe to drink right now? >> well there is only boil water advisories in certain areas of new jersey and connecticut. the rest of the areas, even though there's flooding, the water from the tap is safe to drink. general test if you can see through it is usually safe to drink. any food that has been touched by any floodwater or water that is mixed with sueage, that is dangerous. you know, a lot of th
want to look at sandy and katrina. because we were lucky, i made this chart before we went on. and turns out the estimate was exactly right. if you have that graphic, i don't know if you have that graphic. let's see if you have that graphic. i'm holding here for five, four, maybe not. what it shows is that there it is, that's katrina in the blue, and that's sandy in the green. you can see the pop there and it's come down. so another week of elevated jobless claims would be normal here. continuing claims too early, that's a week behind to show up here. so we're right in the range of where you would expect to be if sandy was an event along the lines of katrina. next thing is this sentiment number. you had courtney on talking about holiday christmas sales. i want to do a pre-christmas consumer check-up on their finances. i don't know if you remember. maybe you don't, unemployment a year ago, what was the number? >> a year ago we were -- >> like a point higher. >> 9%, .1%. most of the metrics you might care about appear to have moved in the right direction for the consumer going i
of hurricane katrina. that's trouble for roughly 100% of re-elected presidents since 1972. yes, it's enough to give you second thoughts about that second term. so is there anything the obama team can do to prevent this? now, as bill clinton might say. >> it depends upon what the meaning of the word "is" is. >> reporter: the fact is, if there is going to be a second-term scandal, its seeds were probably sewn in the first term. the watergate break-in, nixon's first term. the actual iran contra deal, reagan's first term. bill clinton's liaison with lewinsky, first term. the actual plame leaks, first term. so if the obama team was going to mess up, history suggests, they already did. maybe it's something that has made headlines already, but maybe not. remember, the lewinsky scandal didn't surface until 1998. maybe the obama administration will make its own history and avoid a second-term scandal. but if not, disney world may seem very appealing. you know, it was interesting, in the president's news conference, he said he was well aware of the history of presidential overreach in second terms. t
, swiss re actually warned us of an east coast storm like sandy in 2006. after hurricane katrina, swiss re's head of catastrophe perils, andy castaldi, worried aloud about warming seas and more violent storms in the gulf. but, he told me: >> i'm also concerned about the new york bay and long island would be inundated by a flood, due to a category 3 storm. a storm surge could completely flood the airport at jfk. 13 feet of sea water is not out of or to 17 feet is not out of the question. >> reporter: so the blue is sandy's storm surge. we interviewed castaldi again last week, after sandy. >> that's the footprint of the storm surge that was produced by the superstorm sandy, as you can see in the center of the screen is john f. kennedy airport. now i'm going to toggle back to the coastal flood map that we had prior to the storm and you can see just about the same areas as the sandy footprint we knew was exposed to a storm surge. >> reporter: six years ago, you said that you thought that climate change was a major factor in recent storm activity. do you think that more today? >> i can't really
? for hurricane katrina, they changed their estimation procedures to attempt to control for the fact businesses were closed so they weren't getting respondents as a result of closed businesses. after katrina, you had a sharp decline in payrolls. actually, negative after a trend or 200,000 a month. so if it's anything similar to that, then i would expect to see a soft jobs number next month, but the idea is to look past that, right? we know it's a temporary bias. it doesn't necessarily tell us anything about the underlying trend in the economy and you'll get a reversal on the subsequent months after the downward buys from the hurricane. >> but i just wonder if we work our way into december and people are on vacation and not as attuned to the news as they are in other part os the year, but if there's no agreement in washington and if sandy results in noise issy numbers that are bearish, there's a chance you might be revising some expectations in the next month, no? >> and you're right. even though we know there's bias and distortions to the data, it's hard to quantify that. you have this worry th
katrina. 250,000 pets were left stranded. how big a problem was it following super storm sandy? >> basically they wrote the book on katrina and it shows that people will not leave their pets behind. after the horror stories you have, here we have it right here on long island in the new york metropolitan area. we have set up shelters. we had three pet friendly shelters going for approximately 11 days in suffolk county. >> obviously those have been shut down, but you still are offering a to pets and families who have pets, tell me some of the things you're doing. folks are listening to this, they need some money. they need help on this. explain what you're doing. >> we're going into the hardest hit areas and distributing pet food to people that need -- what people don't realize is people don't have cars anymore. people can't drive. people have lost everything. so we are going into these areas and going door to door and distributing it for them. and whatever we can do to help out with their pets and family members. from past experience, what we found is people refuse to leave when
-- well, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff. look at katrina and now sandy. you know, sandy wasn't especially a big hurricane, as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place, and from a geological standpoint, you know, katrina was 2005. sandy is 2012. in a sense of deep time, that's like the blink of an eye. it's just happened like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, this is going to be very expensive and traumatic thing, and that's just in the developed world where we have the means to feed 50,000 people on thanksgiving day, but in developing worlds, it leads to just horrible trauma, and we have huge inefficient sis, and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the right -- in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. i am an advocate of doing everything all at once. >> so to both of you as we wrap it up, real quick then, do you believe, the both of you, we're going to see more, larger, begger, more frequent storms as a

katrina came through. you know what you had to do in terms of working with the federal government. a lot of heat on chris christie, the governor of new jersey for being seen touring his state with president obama and praising his leadership. in your opinion, did governor christie break some unwritten rule? >> look, the governor, whether it's governor of mississippi or new jersey is supposed to do what's in the best interest of his state and his people. and when you have a big disaster like this, a governor knows that not for the next few weeks or months, but for years the federal government's going to be their partner. you know, it's very interesting to me when i didn't criticize george bush after katrina, the press attacked me for not criticizing, saying i was partisan. i did just exactly what chris christie did in this sense. i was taught criticize in private, praise in public, but criticize in private. and besides that, the federal government did a whole lot more right than wrong. for christie and new jersey, their relationship with the federal government is just starting. >> so chris
